This fully revised edition of the authoritative guide to science proposal writing is an essential tool for any researcher embarking on a grant or thesis application.

The only how-to book of its kind, it includes exercises to help readers stay on track as they develop their grant proposals and is designed for those in the physical, life, environmental, biomedical, and social sciences, as well as engineering.

Mercer is an earth and atmospheric scientist and has served as a science program manager at two federal agencies.

“Many topics discussed in the third edition of Writing Successful Science Proposals are common to proposal writing in general. But some are “new.” And some bring a fresh perspective to those perennial topics; especially the crucial concept of audience, that runs throughout the book.”—Tetyana Darian, Technical Communication
